At Bramley St Peter’s we aim to inspire children’s curiosity, appreciation and respect for the wider world that we live in. We intend to equip our children with the geographical knowledge and skills through studies of places, people and natural and human environments.
Our curriculum is designed to allow children to build upon previous knowledge and skills, while engaging them with the wider world and local environment. We aim to provide a balanced geography curriculum so that teaching and learning includes both core knowledge such as facts, vocabulary, places and names, and a sense of place, as well as incorporating fieldwork skills. This will embed geography learning into children’s long-term memory. We plan our geography topics through an enquiry-based approach so that geography engages our children and develops important geographical skills. Children will look at various global issues we face through the 17 Global Goals and explore their possible personal impact. We strive to provide stimulating experiences, ensuring that field trips are part of the geography curriculum wherever possible.
